MTV Suspends 'Catfish' While Nev Schulman Investigated for Sexual Misconduct
A woman who appeared on the show claims Schulman harassed her.
MTV has halted production on reality series Catfish following allegations of sexual misconduct made against executive producer and host Yaniv "Nev" Schulman. A spokesperson for MTV said, "We take these allegations very seriously. We're working with Critical Content, our third-party production company, to conduct a thorough investigation and we've put a pause on shooting until the investigation is completed." Catfish began airing on the network in 2012, a television version of the 2010 documentary of the same name which followed Schulman's online relationship with a woman who presented herself as her own daughter online.
